Haines Gallery is pleased to announce "Ad Infinitum: The Aesthetics of Repetition II", a group exhibition that compares and contrasts distinctive approaches to recurrence and repetition in art. Ranging from a series of blank sign prints by Ed Ruscha to a distinctive mixed media installation by Stephanie Syjuco, this exhibition presents a diverse variety of objects and artists stimulating a strong dialogue on repetition.
The thread of commonality amongst this wide spectrum of mode and material is the laborious nature of producing many of these objects. Visually prominent throughout the works in this exhibition is the obsessive attention to detail and the painstaking processes required in their making. Many of the artworks use the action of repetition, either through a series of similar images or material. Opposing examples include Carl Andre's "Voltaglyph 20" and a series of watercolor landscapes by David Klamen.
Other included artists bring a personal perspective and method to their medium addressing process as much as subject matter. Works by Amy Ellingson, Max Cole, Rana Begum and Omar Chacon all demonstrate a distinct mode of mark-making that, like an individual signature, reflects its makers personality.
